fractured heel

Posted by PaulB on 10/22/04 at 14:39 (161993)

I presently have a cast on for a fractured heel, can you please tell me how long it usually has to stay on ? and if they take it off do I have to wear something else on my foot.
Thank You

I have ben diagnosed with a calcaneal heel fracture. It has been 4 weeks since I sustained this injury and much of the swelling and pain has gone.My main concern is continued swelling on the left side of my left foot as well as some pain and tenderness in the same area.Also what 'home help' can I provide to try and speed up the recovery/healing process??
